problems is called innocence of muslims. behind it is supposed to be sam bacile. he is not anything that he said he was. >> just who made the movie
remains a mystery. it is credited to a shadowy figure named sam bacile. he tells the press he managed the production. >> i think they got him. the associated press tracked him down. when he showed them his driver's license, his name is nicula bacile nicula. he has other aliases. it's him! by the way this guy in 2010 got caught for federal bank fraud charges, $790,000 in restitution. he paid 21 months in prison. he's not allowed to use a computer or the internet for the next five years according to his
probation. he definitely used the internet, so authorities might want to look at that. he might actually be going back to prison. that's fascinating. we'll see if they do anything about that. more from a local fox story about his home. >> the media hoping out here hoping that he will come out here and speak to them and give his version of this story growing evidence that he is that same person. if you take a look at that you tube video it appears that some portions of that movie were filmed or shot inside this home. >> fail. speaking of fail, steve cline said he would help promote the movie. he is an extremist right wing christian here in the united states. >> if i talked to you about this movie would you go out and kill anybody? >> no. >> would the vast major city of muslims do it? >> no. would the genomes, would they go
out and do it? yeah. >> do i have blood on my hands? >> no. >> what you didn't see there was throughout the rest of the interview, he was drinking a beer. classy. second of all you don't have blood on your hands. you said yesterday: >> well, did you know it was going to happen or did you not know it was going to happen? so that's very interesting, as well. meanwhile, here's who didn't know what was going to happen. it's the actors, because apparently they weren't told what was happening at all. here's another report from at-bats. >> raise him as one of your slaves if you must. >> what shall i call him? to what name should i attribute him? >> his name is muhammed. >> they dubbed it in. they didn't tell the actors you're part of a scam movie where we're going to insult muhammed. the actors are concerned, did
this endanger us? why did you lie to us. everybody got. >>ed here. the movie is hideous. you can't even call it a movie. if you can, it's the worst one ever made. that binges, all these attacks over our embassies are still a million% unjustifiable. i got news for the muslim world. i know some fundamentalist muslims don't like it, but we have freedom of speech here. sad day for you. we get to say whatever we want about your religion. if you don't like it, too bad! it's just that simple. oh, your feelings are hurt. i don't really care. maybe that makes me super harsh. i wouldn't have done it the way this movie did it. it was meant to be offensive and cause a reaction. that binges, if you insult christianty, as an american, you've got every right to do that. i'm going to bring in corey
sailor. i know that you guys obviously have condemned the attacks. that's obvious right and i know that you're not a big fan of that movie. that's obvious because it's a terrible terrible movie. everybody recognizes that it's meant to be offensive. having said that, one can we also agree that he's got every right to make that movie. >> absolutely. the first amendment says you can and that's what allows us to have a healthy dialogue in this country. >> i know your group projects positive images of muslims in this country. people say when we're attacked, none of the muslims ever speak up. that's not true, you're group speaks up all the time. >> frequently. >> having said that, can you explain to me why muslims get so bent out of shape? i'm a former muslim, my family's muslim. but why do muslims get so bent
out of shape when somebody disagrees with their religion? so what. >> i think it's natural for somebody to get upset when they hold someone in high esteem. i got upset with the temptation of the christ. the line gets crossed when you act on those emotions in a violent fashion. let's be very frank here. the greater insult to islam is the violence that we see not the movie. the movie is trash but it should be ignored not brought into the lime light. >> we're looking at live pictures of egypt there by the way. there's, you know, you and i again agree on the attacks on the embassies whether it's egypt, yemen morocco tunisis is unacceptable. here's something i never understood. the picture of muhammed, i studied it be grew up in the
religion. depiction of muhammed is not allowed. it is not allowed for muslims why aren't the danish or americans allowed to do it? >> well, they are allowed to do it. that's the reality. it's the reaction that is a concern. muslims are familiar with a story where muhammed went to preach islam near mecca attacked and beaten and later offered the opportunity to destroy that town and he declined. he inside. that's the kind of response we need to see here. the violence is unacceptable. it has the affect of making islam look like a bad faith in many people's eyes. >> i'm going to go one step further here. i of course, 90% of muslims are peaceful. i don't think the majority of muslims think if you trash muhammed the prophet that's ok,
turn the other cheek. i think they think that is a grave offense to must have grave consequences. >> here in the united states, we see violence. somebody walks into a movie theater starts shooting people. somebody opens fire on former coworkers in new york. what doesn't happen is nobody goes oh, all americans are going to be addicted to gun violence because of that. that's a ridiculous notion. we have 1.6 billion muslims in the world. the violence we see is coming from an extremely small minority. they need to learn to express themselves in a non-violent fashion and yes we as muslims recognize that that is on our shoulders, but i don't think the entirety of our faith should be swept under that banner just because a few people decide to act that way. >> all right. fair enough. thank you so much for joining us on the young turks. >> thanks for giving me a chance to talk. >> no problem at all. >> when we come back, we've got
another character ready to talk. jesse ventura. did you know he is probably more liberal than president obama? wait until you find out his policies. the seals that are going after obama, ventura is going after them. >> i say to those seals isn't obama your commander-in-chief? well there you go. >>i jump out of my skin at people when i'm upset. they're doing this this corruption based on corruption based on corruption. >>that's an double miles you can "actually" use. but with those single mile travel cards... [ bridesmaid ] blacked out... but i'm a bridesmaid. oh! "x" marks the spot she'll never sit. but i bought a dress! a toast... the capital one venture card. fly any airline, any flight, anytime. double miles you can actually use.

spearmint that tingles as you chew. stimulate your senses. 5 gum. now in micro pack. >> all right. earlier today, i talked to jesse ventura. he's of course a former wrestler former talk show host, former new york times best seller and navy seal. by wait, former governor of
minnesota. he's an independent and he doesn't like the democrats and the republicans. he thinks they are dominating the cycle and not for the benefit of the american people. in fact, his new book i go called demo crips and rebloodicans. he viewed both parties as very harmful to our system. i asked him about that. he confirmed it and said the biggest problem is money both those parties are hooked on money. it's not a bad argument. we started talking about libertarian candidate gary johnson. >> if gary johnson asked you to be his v.p., would you have accepted? >> i don't think so. not at this point in time. i don't desire to go out in public service at this time again. he has a good choice with him already. i certainly would consider it. i did make public that i said if ron paul would quit the
republican party and run as an independent, i would run with him. >> if gary johnson wins, i know that's a giant if and he wants you to be secretary of defense are you in? >> absolutely. >> ok. >> because i would cut defense. i would follow right what congressman paul said, close our foreign bases, bring our men and women home, and i would stop building this empire that we have around the world. we're following right down the same path as the roman empire, and we all know what happened to rome. >> let me ask you about the swift boat seals going after president obama. now, you're a former navy seal, these guys saying president obama shouldn't take credit for the bin laden raid. i don't know where you stand on that. what's your thoughts? >> why shouldn't he? he was president when it happened. it happened on -- you telling me george bush wouldn't have taken credit for it or dick cheney? absolutely they would have.
no. and as far as this seal writing the book, i have no problem with that. it's after the fact. the mission's over. here's my argument. the navy seals, our entire military and everything is paid by my tax dollars. i have every right to know what they're doing with my tax money. >> right so the navy seal is part of the operation of writing the book, the seals are a different book going after president obama saying he shouldn't get credit is ridiculous. >> we all know they did it. we know the military did it. excuse me, i say this to those seals. isn't obama your commander-in-chief? >> well, there you go. >> you know, on the same side, you should also hold the penalty to blame. if you're going to give him credit for certain things, then he also has to on the flip side accept the blame for certain things like why hasn't he closed gitmo? why hasn't there been one person from the 9/11 on trial so we can
hear some evidence? i believe they won't put them on trial because they have no evidence. >> well, that's an interesting hypothesis and finally something i disagree with you on. i agree they should be brought to justice and to where they did the crime, new york city, and we should bring justice to those guys who did this grotesque crime against the american people. >> remember, who is the main guy, khalid sheik muhammed. they water boarded him. i've been water boarded. i got news for you, you would confess too if you were water boarded 178 times. >> 187 times. >> i was light by 17. put it this way you'd confess after about a seven times. >> oh, a dozen are you kidding me? i don't know if i'd last two. i'm going to force you to tell me something nice about two
parties. what's your favorite part with the republican party and your favorite part with the democratic party. >> you know what, i don't have an answer for that. >> you got to have one thing. >> i don't know if there's anything nice about them. i had to deal with these two parties when i was governor. again, they've created a system that's based completely on bribery. if we bribe people in the private sector, we go to jail, yet we have an entire political system that's based upon bribery. i don't know what i could say nice about either one of the parties. >> how about president obama? i mean, look, i know you've got a lot of bones to pick with him and on a lot of those issues i agree with you the warrantless wiretapping, et cetera, but the supreme court justice have been generally on the right side of issues. couldn't you say that about him? >> yeah, may be so. you do pick judges and judges ultimately are your legacy. when i was governor of minnesota, i named 73 judges to
the bench in minnesota. that's truly a legacy. i think president obama truly is a nice guy. you know, that i'll say about him. he seems to be a very nice guy and he's very likable and he's very presidential in many ways with the way he acts and carries himself, so i guess that's the best compliment i could give him. >> now, i really want to you watch the whole interview because this guy's a character and you're not going to believe how progressive he is. go to youngtucker. he talks about surviving in mexico without electricity. >> number one should a professor be breastfeeding her baby in the middle of class. >> number two bank robbers throw the money out the window
when they're fleeing from police. >> there were a lot of money shots in this pursuit that started at 10:00 a.m. worked it's way to south l.a. it looked like manna from heaven. >> that was robin hood, take from the rich and give to the poor.

um, miss ? you have hard water stains and that cleaner's not gonna cut it. you need lime-a-way. it's 4 times more effective at removing limescale than the leading bathroom cleaner. lime-a-way is specially formulated to conquer hard water stains. for lime, calcium and rust... lime-a-way is a must. >> we got two interesting cases with the supreme court today. a couple of bank robbers rob a bank of america they start getting chased by the cops, do a couple of stops, one to drop or two of them, one to drop another one of them and another to throw money out the window. look at the report. this is fun. >> get away car, four guys held up a bank armed with a knife and
gun driving a stolen car. the cops were on their tails. a chase at times topped 100 miles per hour. then bundles and greenbacks tossed from the back seat of that s.u.v. that's cash thrown from the moving vehicle. >> local news had a field day with this. this is fun. let's see the reaction of the locals here. >> that was some robinhood man take from the rich and get to the poor. >> we rushed and got money. >> i wish i would have been able to find that money. >> we need the money because i'm broke. >> we want money! >> you saw the money being thrown out and grabbed some of it. >> we just screamed at them hey throw some over here. he said all right, just reached out and throw money. it was man. >> what did you do? >> ran and take the money. >> how much did you pick up? >> 20 bucks.
>> dude, don't admit that on air. fox news was covering this. when the guy got stopped the crowd started applauding. they go i wonder if they're applauding the cops. they're not applauding the cops. are they more guilty for throwing out the money and possibly causing people to get in the streets or maybe get hurt or less guilty because they shared? >> i don't think it changes their guilty, but they did the right thing considering the circumstances. it's not like they were going to be able to keep the money. it's like let's help a brother out. >> they could give it back to bank of america. >> yeah, because they definitely need it. >> guilty or not guilty. >> definitely guilty. they can't say obama was a part of redistributing the wealth. >> that's coming. >> don't give them ideas. >> don't give them ideas. >> of course they're guilty of the bank robbery but throwing
the money out, good or bad idea? >> good idea, got people out in traffic. in a way, it was terrible for them, because they got caught because of all the attention they were getting. it was, you know, they're bank robbers, everybody's out applauding them. they held up a bank. what have we come to? literally, i can't believe that's what it is. we're all applauding bank robbers. >> there's something telling about society in this. overall, i'm saying not guilty man for throwing out the money. i'm the bad guy, of course they should return it to the bank, but outside of that, hey they weren't going to get away with the money anyway. >> some people turned it in. >> some turned it in. bless their hearts. now on the second issue we've got a professor named adrien who in who teaches sex gender and culture at american university. she had a sick kid. she decided well, i'm going to take the kid in. the kid's crying. what does she do? she breastfeeds the kid in
class. some students flipped out and thought it was unacceptable. >> breastfeeding in class guilty or not guilty? >> what annoys me is that she had a sick baby in class the baby was playing with the electrical outlet. it was distracting. he or she had a paper clip in the mouth. it was a huge distraction. the people who are just freaking out about the breastfeeding are ridiculous. it's natural. it's an anthropology class where they're learning about sex and culture, come on. >> anna's a huge dork, if you distract from her studies, come on now! >> guilty or not guilty. >> she's not guilty. it's true, bringing a sick baby, worse for the baby than the people. >> the school said it was a terrible idea, because you brought a sick baby into the class, there be possibly making
everybody else sick. >> what about the baby, forget about everybody else. >> we know that ok breastfeeding in public, it's a beautiful thing. it's a child. if you have a problem don't look, she should look, this is a public situation you have students and they to have pay attention to you. >> you're saying they're forced to look at the breastfeeding. >> it's just a personal thing. if you're having a sex ed class doesn't mean the teacher should show you how to have sex. let's shoot a porn. >> i'll be honest, i had a sex ed class in college and they did show us porn. >> they didn't demonstrate it in front of you. >> we move on. eliot spitzer does a serious show, unlike this one. he is next. what do you have for us? >> no joking matter, we're starting tonight with a conversation about the middle east. it's hard to know what will come
next obviously with the death of foreamerican diplomats this is something we are deeply troubled by. we'll be having a fascinating conversation. barney frank i had a great chat with him yesterday. john lewis, one of the iconic voices in our civil rights movement. both of them will be on the show tonight. >> thank you eliot appreciate it. >> always a pleasure. >> when we come back, rush limbaugh's x-raysestlimbaugh craziest conspiracy theory yet. wait until you get a load of this.
